ARL Unveils Its Latest Salary Survey

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) released its annual salary survey for 2017–2018 online and in print. It analyzes salary data for professional staffers in 123 ARL member libraries: 10,000-plus staffers in 114 university libraries and 3,000-plus staffers in 9 non-university research libraries. The university library data are split into three groups (general library systems, health sciences libraries, and law libraries), and the salary data are examined from different perspectives (race, ethnicity, sex, etc.). Findings include the following:

The median salary for professionals in US ARL university libraries in 2017–2018 was $73,357, an increase of 1.1% over the 2016–2017 median salary of $72,560. …

Individuals from historically underrepresented groups make up 15.5% of the professional staff in US ARL university libraries; the percentage of individuals in managerial or administrative positions who are also from historically underrepresented groups is lower. Women make up 68.2% of historically underrepresented staff members. Sex-based salary differentials persist in ARL libraries in 2017–2018. The overall salary for women in the 114 ARL university libraries is 94.9% of that paid to men.
